Dora's first RAE leg

Today, Dora and mom played in the Rally ring and got her first RAE leg (you have to get ten to get the fancy title after her name). She did very well again but we missed placements today. She does get a little too excited on the running jump. The agility dog kicks in and she forgets heel position for a minute. It was a bit nerve racking to go into the ring because of the heat, they had fans on in the ceiling and they were so loud. Dora kept looking up like the world was caving in.

The maltese also did very well but lost the placement based on time... she can heel as fast as the big dogs but you lose points for running the course!

On the way home we shared a roast beef sandwich since Dora didn't want to go for martinis :P

Congratulations! I'd like to try rally or agility with Dusty, but we just finished our beginning obedience class, so it may be a while!

Take your time and have fun with it! Also the first level of Rally is on leash so it isn't as scary as obedience where you have to heel of leash. Also in Rally, you can talk to your dog and give multiple commands. Dora has a lot of fun with Rally. She is yet to make her debut in the agility ring but we are currently retraining the teeter as it scares her.

Good luck,
Amanda

Amanda, congratulations again!

Are you going to the National? They will offer Rally and Obedience there. I have only dabbled a little with each. Tinky partcipated in Rally at the National two years ago when it was first offered to get Havanese involved. On her first time in the ring, she also received her first leg. I should really get back into it because she enjoyed it and so did I.

Can't wait to hear how you do as you continue!

Kim,
I am going to try! I reserved a hotel room but we are moving across country to CA that same month. So it might be kind of hard. It kind of depends when our house sells for! My husband is also gone that same week at a confrence in Canada so I gotta find someone to love the maltese for a week.

It can be addicting! You should definetly keep going in rally.... 3 legs and you get to add a title behind Tinky's name too!

Amanda (who as you can tell got addicted!)
